I had to wear this one a couple of nights ago..

It did cross my mind to wear the Seamaster but it was an event in the evening that required wearing a jacket of some sort. In retrospect, I probably should have and on that NATO nonetheless for that cliched Bond feel :p

Anyway, that kind of broke the Omega spell and the following day, I decided to wear my old Duo for the day switching out the standard black strap for this one on ostrich.

I'll probably have this on for a couple more days. I need to buy a couple of straps for this one to dress it down so I can wear it more often.

Reversos are a beautiful thing, in whatever case size or shape. If I had to choose just one watch to go with a suit, a Reverso would be my default choice. I saw a Rouge TT31 floating around online and did not pull the trigger reasoning out that I have no such need for a piece and that I have other wants that need prioritization. But if I see it again available and accessible, I will take it as a sign smile

This one's still a bit on the yellow/orangey side.. I want it to turn into a darker tone. Can take awhile I suppose

Mines still the original strap

Mine came on the ostrich strap - so yes it's had plenty of time develop its own patina. Not sure you'll need to wait as long - just needs wearing Cheers

At the risk of being banned from this forum forever for reason of blasphemy, I must admit I’ve not been a big fan of the Reverso. Somehow I find them a bit feminine, but that’s maybe because the very first time I saw it life, was when we bought one for my... 

I hear you ...

I had the same thought about the Tribute Duo I just bought, though the word that came to mind was “unisex.” I think there are two reasons for the reaction. First, the midsized Reversos like mine (whose dimensions mimic those of the Grande Taille, which ir... 

Well put

I hear you and I fully understand and agree. You mentioned Cartier and my daughter happens to have the gold Cartier Tank as well. You mentioned occasionally you wear one of your wife’s watches. Funny enough I do same. My wife has a Cartier Roadster midsiz... 

Aaah, daughters... [nt]

Daughters

My daughter is now 32, and I can guarantee you three things: 1) starting from birth every year they will be more expensive, 2) it doesn’t stop when they are adults or finished college or have a job or are married, you just keep spending; I mean instead of... 

Agreed on all points. [nt]

And it doesn't feel like a burden to be honest. Not yet anyway hahaha! Many fathers probably want a boy for their first. I wanted a girl. And fortunately got one. My only child. A real piece unique
